Toronto (ON), Canada (March 27, 2015) — Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory 1.5.18, a maintenance update to its solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign. Output Factory automates and simplifies workflows of printers, prepress bureaus, ad agencies and publishing houses worldwide by offering batch processing with powerful and time-saving output options.

“Output Factory has been the single biggest time-saver I’ve encountered in years of print production,” says Mike Agate, Production Manager of Which?, Europe’s largest consumer rights organization. “Easily saves hours a week, producing bullet-proof documents over and over… With the reduction in head count and efficiency savings, it must have paid for itself 500 times over.”

The new version addresses a bug in InDesign installation that can prevent Output Factory from retrieving the list of document’s alternate layouts. This error could result in incorrect output page range, erroneous file names and other issues. Output Factory now informs the user about the installation error, its possible consequences and steps to take to resolve the problem.

With Output Factory users only need to select InDesign files, adjust workflow settings, and the software will do the rest automatically. Built-in preflighting ensures that no output errors will be left unnoticed. The program supports all popular output formats and offers the following key features:

Output multiple InDesign files with a single click
Export as single pages
-Output to several formats at once
-Output layer combinations as single files
-Update modified links automatically
-Variable output file names
-Preflight files before processing and skip errors
-Detailed output history

Output Factory can be purchased from Zevrix website for US$169.95 (Light version $120, Server $700), as well as from authorized resellers and Adobe Exchange. Trial is also available for download. BatchOutput users can upgrade to Output Factory for $84.97. Output Factory requires Mac OS X 10.6-10.10 and Adobe InDesign CS3-CC 2014.
